    welllllllllllll folks, today in the mail i got a lil package from a Mr. joejewler. In side was my current #2 fav knife, a ZT0200 :D

    this thing is built like a tank. heavy, stout, fairly sharp (Lahar is FAR sharper, but then again the ZT is built for a dif reason). im still deciding wether to make it a user or a safe queen (well safe the random things i want to either stab or slice :D), or just plain beat the crap outta it.

    prolly wont do the last one. im planning on the Navy, so this will be a knife i want to take with me.

    THANK YOU JOE!!!!!!!

    now for a ZT0301!!!!!!!!

    i will post pics tomorow. got some studyin to do for my last final tomorow

    OL, are you OTC or ROTC? The reason I ask is that my S-I-L is upping the Navy..He leaves in January for some place in Michigan or Illinois, can't remember which, but it's on one of the lakes...either way, it'll be cold as you-know-what in either place!

    We got him a full sized Cyclone to take with him. Good Luck on your exams and with the service!

    Glad it arrived so quickly,.......and they be sharper than you think. I'm still healing up from an encounter about 3 1/2 weeks ago from it's little brother, the Spec Bump. NEVER be distracted by your pooch when closing one up single handed! Darn near took the tip of my pinky off! :eek:

    The Lahar has a finer blade grind and a sharper angle of the sharpening, probably,.....but it's not made for heavy duty work like the ZT 0200. A soldier needing to pierce a lot of equipement and still reach flesh needs the extra stout blade on the ZT knives. Me,.....i just need to cut open a TOUGH package or two! :D (a bit overkill, i know!)

    ........notice i encluded a piece of paper towel in the box to prevent the knife from moving around too much in the factory box,........

    ....that can also soak up quite a bit of "red run",.......if you have a collision with the blade. ;)

    ENJOY,...................

    light years ahead of it. gonna be interesting to see how 154CM holds up if i treat it like i do Butch. i know that 13c26 does great.

    i will be ROTC. starting next year. i wanted to see if i could handle college first. so far so good. good luck to your son (i asume considering i cant remember what S-I-L is lol). cyclone is a good choice eh glock?

    This looks like a good thread to jump in on!

    The ZT0200 Joe sent me just got here. I haven't had a chance to cut any other knives in half with it, but I guess it could. :eek: I put it next to my SnG and it made the SnG look lightweight and almost ... flimsy. Kershaw outdid themselves with this series. They always did make solid knives though.

    The only knives I know of that come close are my Extrema Ratio Nemesis and MOD CQD, and the Strider AR/GB.

    I cannot imagine hiding this knife in a box. It only makes sense going out in the world and cutting stuff. I think I'm going to take it for a walk. If you notice a disturbance in The Force in northern New Jersey, it's just me and my ZT. :D

    Thank you, Joe!

    You have to be especially careful with a deep recurve like this. A motion along the edge of a simple curved belly that wouldn't hurt you will turn into a real slash when you hit the other side of the recurve.

    Hey, it's only blood ... (ouch).

    I swear...If I had to take on a grizzly bear with just a folder, or if I ever had to cut my way out of something (house, car, stomach of a whale :D), the ZT 0200 is the one I'd want to have in my hand. I used to think that the original Spyderco Chinook was a stout folder, but it has nothing on the ZT 0200.

    I was considering the ZT 0200 but ordered the Offset yesterday instead. Hope I didn't make wrong choice. How do these two knives match up?

    both are flippin (pun intended :D) awsome. if you have played Halo 2 or 3 (or not), the ZT is a Brute (big, strong, doesnt take no for answer) and the Offset is an Elite (smart, fast, and excellent). strange analogy i know, but it works. you wont be disapointed with the Offset :D

    Offsetlover, thanks for the input, and glockman99 is right; I will eventually wind up with the 0200 anyway. I am just starting to look at the Kershaw line and I am very impressed (as I am with this K forum also).
